Park Gyu-young has been in talks to star in this drama since January. Lee Jae-wook from Extraordinary You was also offered a role as the main character in January, but he turned it down a month later.

On 9th March, it was confirmed that Kim Min-jae, who last starred in Do You Like Brahms?, will be playing the lead role in the drama. Subsequently, Kwon Yul and Yeon-woo took up the supporting roles 10 days later.

Dal Li and Gamjatang is about Kim Dal-li, a polyglot-cum-museum director who often forgets to take care of herself. She is considerate towards others, elegant, and smart.

On the other hand, Jin Mu-hak, the director of the global food company Dondon F&B, is far behind Dal-li in terms of intelligence and only cares about money.

As the drama progresses, an unexpected romance blossoms between Dal-li and Mu-hak after the latter tries to take over Dal-li’s museum.


Park Gyu-young’s promising future

In It’s Okay To Not Be Okay, she played a nurse who is demure but has an inferiority complex, and in Sweet Home, she acted as a badass who can compartmentalise her feelings – and that’s just 2 of the many sides of her we’ve seen so far. We can’t wait to see her as a successful career-oriented woman in Dal In and Gamjatang, and what she has in store for us in the future.
